Enjoy!

Tip 1 - Use All Your Available Space

Don't be afraid to use all the space in your photo. If you want to take a
picture of something, it's ok for it to take up the whole shot with no or
very little background showing. Keep distractions out of your shot


Tip 2 - Study Forms

This is a vital aspect to photography. Understanding forms in your
photos. Don't see an object, she its shape and its form and find the best
angle to photograph it from. Form is all around us and I highly suggest
you read as many books on it as possible.


Tip 3 - Motion In Your Photos

Never have motion in your photos if you are photographing a still object.
If there is something moving while you are trying to photograph a
stationery object, your photo won't turn out anywhere near as well. Also
never put a horizon line in the center of your frame.


Tip 4 - Learn To Use Contrasts Between Colors.

Some of the best photos have shades of white, gray and black. You can
take great shots with just one color on your subject, but the contrasts
between colors in a shot is what makes you a great photographer.


Tip 5 - Get Closer To Your Subject
This is one of the biggest mistakes most photographers make, not getting
close enough to their subject. Get up and personal and close the distance
gap. You can always reshape and resize a good shot but you can't continue
to blowup a distant object.


Tip 6 - Shutter Lag

Shooting action shots with digital camera's can be tricky due to shutter
lags. What this means is, when you press the button to take the photo, it
can take up to a second for the shutter to take a photo, by that time
what you were photographing would have moved or changed somehow. This
means you have to compensate for shutter lag by predicting what your
subject is going to do and taking the photo just before it takes the
action you want. More expensive digital cameras don't have this problem.


Tip 7 - Pan

If you are taking an action shot and your shutter speed is slow, pan with
the object. Follow through with the subject, from start to finish and one
of those shots will be a winner. You have more chance of getting a good
shot if you take more then one photo.


Tip 8 - Continuous Shots

To pan like I suggested above you will need a camera that does continuous
shots and doesn’t need to stop and process after every shot.


Tip 9 - How To Take Fantastic Night Time Shots

Night time shots can be spectacular, almost magical.... if done right! If
not they can look horrible. Really horrible. Without adequate lighting,
even good camera's can turn out crappy photos if the photographer doesn't
know what he or she is doing.


Tip 10 - Study Your Manual

If your digital camera has a special night time mode, read the manual and
follow their instructions on how to use it properly.
